Marin Drzic is a peculiar persona in Croatian literature and culture, exceptional for his writings, as well as in attitude and actions. Therefore, explanation of his life is often inconsistent, but his works were always extremely appreciated.

Everyone who ever studied Marin Drzic, came to conclusion that he had an exceptional talent for comedy, and was often called "the king of laughter". Marin was the opposite of other Dubrovnik writers (ie. Ivan Gundulic), who wrote in an exalted style. Marin was, let's say, the other side of the medal - always questioning, satirically and ironically laughing at human flaws, the bestial part of human nature and mostly human stupidity.
It is very interesting that during his last years, he wrote conspiracy letters with which he wanted to dethrone "twenty jesters" - twenty members of council ruling over the Dubrovnik Republic. Thoughts about that are still divided - some consider him a traitor, while others say it is an act of democracy.
